These pictures want me to travel back to the Andaman islands. I got reminded about the Andaman island because the BBC had an article about �Last speaker of ancient Andaman language dies� The Andaman Islands are a group of archipelagic islands in the Bay of Bengal, and are part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory of India. The Andaman Archipelago is an oceanic continuation of the Burmese Arakan Yoma range in the North and of the Indonesian Archipelago in the South. It includes some two hundred islands. Of the slightly more than 300,000 people that live in the Andaman Islands, a small minority of about 1,000 are indigenous Adivasis of the Andamans. The rest are mainly divided between Hindi, Bengali, Tamil and Punjabi speaking people from the mainland. The aboriginal inhabitants are the Great Andamanese, Jarawa, Onge, Shompen, Sentinelese and the extinct Jangil. Photos via
